Mini CV

After completing my law studies at the University of Groningen, I worked for almost two years at the court in Groningen. In August 1989 I started working as a lawyer and since then I have been a lawyer at Dorhout Advocaten, where I joined the partnership in 1995. I have been a partner since Dorhout Advocaten became an N.V. in early 2011. And since 29th July 2013 I have been a director.

I mainly focus on corporate law in the broadest sense: company law (law of legal entities, disputes within companies including those with respect to directors, shareholders and the Enterprise Division of the Court, joint ventures, business transfers, restructuring), contract law (drafting and reviewing agreements), liability law (breach of contract, unlawful acts and directors’ liability) and labour law.

I successfully completed the Company and Corporate Law specialization course at the Grotius Academy.

My experience and generalist approach enable me to tackle and resolve problems from a broad perspective (not only from a legal point of view). The latter also is my ambition, as I want to achieve the maximum result for my client. I am tenacious and sharp and have a positive attitude.
